Sport Ireland, which is funded by my Department, is the statutory body with responsibility for the development of sport, increasing participation at all levels and raising standards. This remit includes the allocation of funding to sporting organisations and other entities for the design and implementation of a range of targeted programmes and initiatives to promote increased sports participation amongst the various groups in society that participate less than the population average.

As this is a matter for Sport Ireland, I have referred the Deputy's question to the agency for direct reply. I would ask the Deputy to inform my office if a reply is not received within 10 working days.
